Hi All,

I bought a set of EVO Tech sliders for my 2018 939 SP. I've got a few questions, wondering if anyone can help.

I bought the rear axle sliders and the frame sliders. Links below:

1) The frame sliders look like they are going to work great, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what the torque spec is for the bolt required to install it. It's the top engine mount that goes through the frame on both sides, and through the top of the engine. I still haven't located a 2018 Service Manual, so I'm going off the 2015 that was listed here on the site. Looking at the torque spec list, can someone help identify which one of these is that specific bolt? Alternatively, does anyone know the torque spec for that specific bolt? Two pics attached.

2) I do not think the rear axle sliders are going to work. I use a Pit Bull rear stand, and it seems that once I install that slider, the stand will no longer go into the axle. Anyone have any experience with this? Is there an option that allows both to work? If not, this will probably get returned.

3) I did not order the front axle sliders, I was going to do those next. But now I am reconsidering because of the problem of the axle stand with the rear. Anyone have any experience with getting front axle sliders and still allowing a front axle stand to work?

4) I do not see bar end sliders on EVO Tech's website. Anyone have any experience with a good set they can recommend?

5) Last but not least...just looking for max protection in case she ever goes down. Front Axle, Rear Axle, Frame, and Bar End sliders are what I was going to stick on. Anything I'm missing?

Thanks all!

As a quick follow up...I don't think I need to support the engine, do I?

My plan was to undo that bolt, slide the new one through while pushing the old one out, preventing the need to support anything.

What say you? Yay? Nay?

It is the "fastener retaining frame to engine" torqued to 60 Nm. I have Evotech sliders on my 821 and that is what used.

You can install as you propose, I did this as well. You do not need to support the motor if you "drive" the installed bolt out with the shaft for the sliders.

About the axle sliders, if you use a stand designee for the single sided swingarm which fits into the axle you will have to remove the sliders to use the stand. I don't believe there is any other way to do this. Some sliders will allow the use of normal stands. I use an ABBA stand and only need to remove the slider if I want to lift the front wheel as well as the rear.

Hope you get it sorted.

Cheers,

Jac.
